Soap free means easy cleaning!

November 23, 2015 2 min read

Did you know that the soap you use in your bath and shower is often a cause of the scummy build up on your bath, tiles or shower screen?

Soaps for cleaning are obtained by treating vegetable or animal oils and fats with a strongly alkaline solution. Various fats used in soap making are tallow (animal), palm oil, laurel oil, olive oil and caster oil.

Unlike detergents, soap reacts with minerals common in most water, forming an insoluble film that remains on fabrics and hard surfaces. For this reason soap is not as efficient a cleaner as most detergents for fabrics as it will leave a film requiring extra work to remove and also deposit a scum on hard surfaces that will need removing so it don't build up.

If you already have soap scum or it's build up on shower screens, bath tubs & tiles some hints to remove are:

enviroCLEAN Laundry Powder & Presoak

1. Make a paste of laundry powder + water.

2. Work the paste into the soap scum & leave on for 15-20 minutes.

3. Scrub in a circular motion.

4. Rinse well with clean water.

White Vinegar

1. Spray full strength white vinegar with a drop or 2 of enviroClean Dish Wash Liquid on the scum.

2. Rub lightly to distribute the cleaning solution.

3. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.

4. Scrub with brush/scourer to work away the soap scum.

Baking Soda

1. Wet the area you are cleaning, sprinkle baking soda on soap scum.

2. Scrub in a circular motion.

3. Rinse well.

4. Follow up by pouring a cup of white vinegar down the drain to clean it.

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
